One of Indonesia's most beautiful islands, located to the east of Borneo.

My suggestion:
Go and take a look at the famous boats made of teak that are built in southern Sulawesi in Tanah Beru village.
My review

Sulawesi island is an absolutely magnificent island to the east of Borneo. It is shaped like a scorpion in the middle of the ocean. According to me, it is one of the most beautiful Indonesian islands. The sea is every where, between paradisiacal inlets and luxuriant mountains.

The island is particularly mountainous, with passes at an altitude of over 10000 feet. I recommend this one before any other during a stay in Indonesia . Bira beach alone is worth a detour to the island.

Numerous ethnic groups live on Sulawesi island where over forty different languages are spoken. This is what makes it so exceptional in relation to the country's other islands. Do not miss the surprising funeral ceremonies practised in Tana Toraja.
